Boston Common & Public Garden Wedding:: Amy + Malik
Nothing beats a fabulous Spring day and beautiful flowers at the Boston Common and Boston Public Garden. I had the pleasure of assisting Shang Chen Photography at Amy and Malik’s wedding on April 30th, 2011. It was my first time assisting a wedding and I was so grateful that she let me take photos. It was an intimate wedding of about forty close friends and family.
What a cute picture of Amy and her dad walking down the isle! They looked really happy.
I love how Amy and Malik are holding hands in the left picture. And yes, that’s a vintage camcorder in the picture to the right.
I love how Malik and Amy’s mom wiped off her joyful tear. She was clearly too happy.
So it wasn’t only Amy who shred a tear, her friend did too, she was apparently happy for her. I love capturing emotional moments like this.
Amy’s talented friends were playing the guitar and blowing bubbles at the end of the ceremony. It was quite romantic.

Aaaah… so much love in the air!
After the ceremony, we hopped on a trolley and toured around Boston (some of Amy and Malik’s family are from all over the world.) Granted I’ve spent so many years in Boston, I’ve never taken any Trolley Tour, Dock Tour, or the like; it was true that you come out smarter after taking one of those tours. I learned that the Massachusetts state house dome is made out of real gold.
I just love how the light fell on Amy in the top two pictures. This reception was at West on Centre in West Roxbury, according to Shang Chen, it was one of their favorite restaurants. It was quite nice.
Isn’t she the cutest little girl?! I wanted to squeeze her cheeks, she looked like “Nope, you ain’t getting it.”
Did you notice the resemblance between the cake topper and Amy and Malik? According to Shang Chen, it was a last-minute addition and Amy had to hide it from Malik or else it would have given away her dress. Also, the table numbers on the pictures represented the number of years they had been together.
Dance with the parents.
